2 Lecture / 2 Studio / 3 CreditsIn response to current environmental concerns, we will explore the multi-faceted ways that contemporary artists via the process of “eco-art” interact with the natural world. We will investigate a broad range of environmental perspectives intended to enrich our understanding of current environmental concerns and their interpretation through visual and written media. We will examine our relationship to one another and to our planet and what we can do as creative, thinking, artistic individuals in response to what we learn. During the studio component of this course, we will reconnect with the earth by making low-impact, transitory art from found natural materials using only our bodies as art making tools. Prerequisite: Junior or Senior level standing.
